Besides getting to the finals, most teams if not all, will be playing to win and get promoted. The West Indian Softball Association has a promotion/relegation system that gives all teams the opportunity to play competitive cricket in all divisions. At the least, the top two teams usually are promoted to the division ahead of them while the two last place teams in points are relegated to the division below them.

This is one way to ensure that no team dominates in a specific division except in Premier Elite. At the minimum, all the teams that advance to the final will get, promoted. Hence, this week’s games, has a lot of significance for teams that have aspirations of playing more competitive cricket.
